I personally tried to go back to Rogue Galaxy recently, and had a lot of trouble getting into it. You're right that Gambits would've made the gameplay better. The AI is rediculously stupid at times. There's also challenges that appear randomly, but they just aren't worth doing on your first time on a planet. The general combat, though, is rather annoying, IMO. You're attacks are limited in number and of course there's that weird guage thing that drains every time you attack, I guess it's a nice idea, so you don't just mash your way through every fight, but it does make battles longer than necessary, and I found that they quickly became tiresome. Which wouldn't be a problem if you didn't need to engage in lots of battles to level up your equipment so you can use them in the fusion process.

Of course, overall, it still feels like a good mix between the good ideas Star Ocean 3 and FFXII had, it's just that it didn't quite take all of them as far as they could've gone.

As for myself, I'm not a comedy fan to begin with....

Yeah, I'm starting to notice that. Half the appeal of Soul Eater, for instance, is its comedy, which is top-notch, IMO. Personally, I'm pretty hard to please when it comes to comedy, but I do look for it where I can and appreciate it when its done right.

Cool. Maybe by the time it makes it over here I'll have actually beaten the first game.

I'm less offended by the premise and mini-game in Criminal Girls, so much as I'm offended by the idea that a decent publisher like Nippon Ichi has to stoop so low as to put out a game that sounds like it belongs in the back of a comic shop in Akihabara. (even if it doesn't actually go that far).

OT: Erm, I guess I'll mention both PSP Super Robot Wars games are pretty easy to play if you've played a Super Robot Wars game before.

What boggles my mind though is that this series is 24 episodes long while it could easily be shorter without losing anything in the process.

This seems to be the biggest complaint I hear about Casshern Sins. I really find it hard to watch a show that's stretched so much.

you'd probably do better selling II separately right?

It's already in the hundreds with 7 days to go. I think he'll be fine.

I tried Vanquish... there's almost too much shit going on at once. I can't seem to get the hang of the controls in that.

Same here. I played through the demo a few times. It was fast paced and exciting, but there was just so much going on. The whole sliding thing was cool, but I couldn't get the hang of it. I imagine a more hardcore "expert" gamer would love the hell out of it, though.

Lard: I rather liked LOK: Defiance when I played it. But I loved the heck out of all those games. I miss Raziel and Kain.

I don't consider myself an expert by any means, especially when it comes to shooters, but I got the hang of Vanquished pretty quickly. I highly recommend turning the difficulty down and working your way up, though.

Looks rediculous and funny, but I question whether or not it'd be fun...

I just found out that Armored Trooper Votoms has been in America since 2006. I thought that was released here before. The first 3 sets are very cheap, but the last set seems to be impossible to get ahold of.

I can't stop smiling. =D

Just hope they include the tower mode from the PSP game. But perhaps that'll be unnecessary with online?

Final Fantasy V wasn't that hard either, from what I've played at least. Sure, there were some grind points and some monsters I had to avoid, but it still wasn't NES hard. I see Bravely Default as more of a FFV spiritual sequel than anything else, so it actually kinda makes sense for it to not be all that hard.

I'd prefer he learned the hardware first, too. With that said, if he does something new for the Vita, I'm sure he could make something very impressive, at least visually if not gameplay-wise as well.

I just go with fansubs and buy the domestic DVD/Blurays when they come out

I've had nothing but bad experiences with fansubs outside of ones for really old stuff, so I try to avoid them when I can. Plus, I hate trying to find good mirrors. At least with official stuff I know the quality of the video will be good. I have a bad feeling Viz or Aniplex might pick up Jojo, though, in which case I might not have much of a choice.

The new Jojo's Bizarre Adventure anime is awesome.  Next episode can't come fast enough

I'm so looking forward to that. Hope it gets licensed for streaming soon, I don't want to have to go for those expensive subbed imports.

^Get Paprika along with it, just so it'll stop taunting me. :P
